The federal government has taken a major step in its ambitious infrastructure program. By signing a funding agreement with British Columbia it moves the first block of cash in its multibillion-dollar plan.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Ottawa will spend $460 million in British Columbia to help pay for upgrades to existing transit infrastructure, including renovations to aging transit stations and building new bus lanes.

Trudeau said $370 million of that money has been earmarked for transit projects in Metro Vancouver.
